About Champlain College:
Founded in 1878,
Champlain College is a small, private, not-for-profit college in
Burlington, Vermont overlooking Lake Champlain and the Adirondack
mountains, with additional campuses in Montreal, Canada, and
Dublin, Ireland. Its career-driven approach to higher education
prepares students for professional life from their very first
semester. For the fifth year in a row, Champlain was named a "Most
Innovative School" in the North by U.S. News & World Report's
"America's Best Colleges" 2020 regional rankings and listed among
The Princeton Review's "The Best 385 Colleges" in 2020. Champlain
is also featured in the 2021 Fiske Guide to Colleges as one of the
"best and most interesting schools" in the United States, Canada,
and Great Britain and is recognized as a 2020 College of
Distinction for its "Engagement, Teaching, Community, and Outcomes.
The College offers 30 undergraduate degrees as well as online
undergraduate, graduate, and certificate programs.
Champlain's Centers of Experience provide students from across
all majors with experiential learning environments that guide them
in how to take their classroom knowledge and put it to the test in
practical applications allowing them to gain real-world experience
firsthand. Each Center connects Champlain to the local community
and the world, turning theory into practice. The Centers entrust
students with responsibility, engage them in ambitious goals and
empower them to lead with creativity, confidence, insight, and
integrity. At the helms of the Centers are cutting-edge industry
professionals who share the goal of providing the most relevant,
career-focused education, enriched with hands-on learning
In 1992, Champlain was honored to find that the College's
practice of helping individuals reach professional success through
relevant and applicable degree programs had attracted a population
of working professional students. However, this new student
population was struggling to find the time to attend on-campus
classes and the traditional format of in-person education was not
well suited for working adults. To better serve these students, who
needed more flexibility to balance work, family, and school,
Champlain College established some of the country's first online
academic degree and certificate programs.
Champlain College, accredited by the New England
Commission of Higher Education, now offers more than 60 nationally
acclaimed degree programs in a flexible online format
designed to accommodate those who need it most - working adult
students. Today, Champlain's 3,000+ online students can be found in
all 50 states and around the globe.
